DROP BJ UPTON

Postby cws5887 » Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:57 pm

Should I drop BJ Upton for Sam Fuld? Looks like Upton will never reach his potential, and Fuld has double the SB's and hits! Any Input?

Fuld is worth a pick up, but not at the expense of Upton.

Still early. Hard to dump Upton when you spent a high draft pick on him. I'd look for someone else to drop for fuld.

Don't b that guy that dumps a consistent fantasy performer for a early season hot bat and then kicks himself later. If you can drop somebody else who doesn't possess Upton's potential then by all means grab Fuld but if Upton is your best option to drop... I think ud be very ill advised.

Pretty much I agree. Get Fuld if you can, but not by dropping Upton

I let Adam Dunn go today for Aaron Harang, so i will stay put. This is a 8X8 head to head league, so I needed another pitcher before they were off the board. I was hesitent on dropping Dunn, but have a stacked lineup. I will not take too many chances.

This is an eight team head to head league where there are many big names on the wire. I needed a pitcher to be competitive, and had no choice. I already tried to trade him and had no interest. you tell me what you would have done below.

Ummm... Dunn would have been my utility and if I had to drop somebody it would have been Berkman... just has a hot bat right now and can't hit lefties to save his soul.
